There is No Harvest when You’ve Sowed No Seed

The servant that has been all day working in the vineyard longs till evening comes, when he shall receive his pay. How can they who have lived, and brought no glory to God, think of dying with comfort? They cannot expect a harvest where they sowed no seed. How can they expect glory from God who never brought any glory to Him? O in what horror will they be at death! The worm of conscience will gnaw their souls, before the worms can gnaw their bodies. “A Body of Divinity” pg. 20

None Say on Their Deathbed that They have Been Too Holy

Do we think walking with God can do us any hurt? Did we ever hear any cry out on their deathbed that they have been too holy, that they have prayed too much, or walked with God too much? No, that which has cut them to the heart has been this, that they have not walked more closely with God; they have wrung their hand and torn their hair to think that they have been so bewitched with the pleasures of the world. Close walking with God will make our enemy (death) be at peace with us. “The Godly Man’s Picture” pg. 181
